Hey Hey Perfume Junkies,
OK I’m adding a THUNKED section here too. It’s becoming an APJ obsession and I love the idea of us using our fragrances and hoiking the vial, decant or bottle. Thunk is the sound of an empty hitting the bin so you must empty it for the thunk to count.
Anything worthy of comment, either good or bad, that’s passed under my nose through the week will get a short write up. If I think something is terrible, shamefully lazy, greedy or stupid and you should know about it, it will be said. As always YMMV.
I’d love it if you get involved: agree, respectfully disagree, have any thought-out opinion and want to share, do so in the comments below. The point is starting a conversation.

Sung by Alfred Sung Shower Gel
Not really a New Sniff as such because I have the fragrance but the shower gel is a softened aldehydic narcissus. Very pretty, not overpowering and leaves a subtle scent trail on my body afterwards.
Heart of Darkness by Providence Perfume Co
Full of light and the rebirth of spring. Zingy and lilting lavender with a charry incense and shady side of a tree woodsy smell. I am reminded of the dry down of Mitsouko but done in a 21st century Indie way. Gorgeous.
Moss Gown by Providence Perfume Co
Green, sappy, torn branches, leaves and the rich, reminiscent scent of a grass heavy compost heap. Perfectly named.
La Fin Du Monde by Etat Libre d’Orange
Not exactly a New Sniff but I’m wearing this lovely from Greg’s collection. It’s all the notes but also smells like cooking rice to me.
Dr Bonners Almond Soap
Woo Hoo! I love to thunk a shower gel. It has been quickly replaced by a Sung Shower Gel in a tube.
Niki de Sain Phalle EdT
YAY! I thunked a bottle. Only 13ml but nevertheless. It’s a BOTTLE! This was last week but I forgot to mention it.
Have you tried any of these? How did they work for you?
